Lynch welcomes start of Flood Alleviation Scheme

9 December, 2016 - by Seán Lynch

Sinn Féin MLA Seán Lynch has welcomed the start of a £600,000 Flood Alleviation Scheme at Newbridge Road, Lisnaskea.

Mr Lynch said:

“I welcome this news from the Infrastructure Minister Chris Hazzard. This work will prevent the closure of this important rural road should we see another flooding event like those which occurred in previous years.

“These improvements will deliver benefits for the local community and visitors to the Fermanagh area for many years to come.

“Work on a temporary road, adjacent to the existing road, to facilitate light traffic will begin on Monday 12 December and will be completed before Christmas 2016.

“The main work will get underway in the New Year and is expected to be completed by March 2017."
